  • Not seen them so far. For me something like the poc dungarees appear a more versatile option. Also being a sweaty bastard I see the over lap of jacket/bib straps as a useful ventilation point. Or the option of dungarees and t shirt when the ground is wet but they skies aren’t raining.

  • I would totally wear the POC dungarees, but then I also quite want the Resurgence armoured dungarees for motorbike riding. No way I'm paying out 400 quid though, and it seems to be that theyve become a bit of a 'everyone will know how rich I am if I wear these' thing at peaslake. it does that job better than riding a high tower

  • Same. Also £400 for a garment that might well get torn up in a tumble.

  • When I used to bikepark, those paper-ish painter-decorator overalls were a thing when it was wet. Couple of sets a day and you reduced the crap in your car and washing machine. Still got wet though.

  • Those pants are ultimate gorpcore, i want them. Perfect to watch a few youtube megavalanche full runs in the pub.

  • If anyone is interested, I made a batch of Micro-musettes, just gone onto the site;­s/unisex/lightweight-bags/

    Available to purchase, or spend £15o + use the code MADEINLONDON and get one free (won't work with the forum disc I'm afraid). These are the stripped back, ultra-packable version - looks simple but has taken a lot of iterative designs to get here. ....Love to find time to do another forum batch, keep hounding me :D

  • Perfect. Just ordered

    Do you have any advice on not immediately losing it though?

  • ha! Always keep in the same place when not using? Mine is either in jeans fob(??) pocket, or the zipped pocket on my big backpack. ...but I did find a missing proto in my rainjacket pocket this morning....

  • Store it unpacked @Belagerent? I thought I was being a genius keeping my burner in it's little pocket but then I could never find it. It only needs to be stored away if you're doing some ride where space is a premium anyway right?

    Roll up and store in the bike specific EDC case

  • …Another one is rolled up, inside bar, with bar plug trapping the end of the strap, so you can pull it out easy.

  • When are the lovely trousers coming out again? Did you say October?

  • Anyone use the insulated jacket ? What is the fit like ?

  • Tried on one in Condor. I'm normally a large for other brands but fit the extra large for the insulated jacket.

  • Main range will be a week today, and the Zoa range with the waterproof trousers, at end of month …photoshoot in mid-Wales over last few days, so I’ll post some pics/more info asap. If anyone is in dire need of a pair, I might be able to arrange direct sales earlier (same as Day Tripping), but can’t promise!

  • photoshoot in mid-Wales over last few days

    Please tell me you took @youramericanlover with you for some grizzled fixie-suffering authenticity.

  • The on-bike Insulated Jacket or the bigger Zoa Insulated Jacket?
    Either way, I personally find sizing is consistent with Rapha, just a more casual, upright fit for the Zoa, to wear over more layers and off-bike. The Insulated Jacket is closer, has swept forward arms, narrower across front chest etc which is noticeable if you're stood up straight, not on a road bike. Hope this helps

  • Alas, I wasn't party to this if he was!? ....I've been on the machines working on things for the Bespoked staff in a few weekends time. If anyone is visiting, come and say hi, will be on the stand doing repair-patch fixes for the three days :)

  • Cool thanks for update. In no dire need so can wait, will pick up an rain jacket at same time I think 👍
